Get Inspired: The September issues are slowly trickling in. We love seeing Daria Werbowy's touch editorial in Vogue UK (you can download that one now on your ipad). The Town and Country issue looks like it will be pretty great too, with two of our favorite young tastemakers on the cover: Claire Courtin-Clarins and Lauren Bush. Plus, who isn't excited about seeing Princess Diana on the cover of Vanity Fair -- this one will hands down be the best last summer weekends reading material.
Get Local: The Dallas Design District is our home during the week, but the weekend is proving to be pretty festive. Check out their indoor/outdoor events Saturday around the neighborhood; first stop should be The Dallas Contemporary. More details here. If you're out on date night, FT33 is a hot restaurant that everyone has been talking about. You know it's worth the hype when Bon Appétit Magazine names it one of the 50 best new restaurants in America. We're dying to try it!
Get Involved: TWO x TWO for aids is well-known around Dallas and the nation for raising over $40 million in support of amfAR’s AIDS research initiatives and the DMA’s contemporary art acquisition program. Beyond being a worthy cause, they have amazing pieces of artwork that have national collectors taking note. Check out their catalog here. Our favorite are the brilliant neon statements from Tracey Emin (Trust Yourself, £35,000) and the killer artwork of Brooklyn artist Emilio Perez (Just Another, acrylic and latex on wood, $18,000). Add to your collection and support this beautiful cause.
